Panerai Luminor Sub­mersible 1950 Amag­netic 3 Days Au­to­matic Ti­tanio Strap and clasp (max. 10 points):

The prac­ti­cal rub­ber strap and its large clasp are tidily crafted and a good match for the watch’s case, but the range of ad­just­ment should be greater. 8 Op­er­a­tion (5):

The crown is easy to op­er­ate, and so is the bezel – un­less the user is wear­ing gloves. 4 Case (10): The well-built and pres­sure-re­sis­tant ti­ta­nium case is equipped with the prac­ti­cal fea­tures of pro­tec­tion against mag­netism, a bezel with a scratch-re­sis­tant ceramic scale, and the le­gendary crown guard. 9 De­sign (15):

Panerai skill­fully com­bined retro and mod­ern el­e­ments to cre­ate a suc­cess­ful de­sign. 14 Leg­i­bil­ity (5): The color of the lu­mi­nous ma­te­rial iden­ti­fies the dive-time in­di­ca­tors. The large hour hand and min­utes hand and the in­dexes are clearly vis­i­ble, but the crys­tal is highly re­flec­tive. 4 Wear­ing com­fort (10): The wear­ing com­fort is sur­pris­ingly good for a watch of this size; the sup­ple rub­ber strap con­trib­utes to the com­fort­able feel­ing on the wrist. 8 Move­ment (20): The man­u­fac­ture cal­iber with lon­glast­ing power re­serve, two bar­rels, bal­ance bridge and freely os­cil­lat­ing bal­ance has plenty to of­fer in terms of its con­struc­tion. The em­bel­lish­ments are taste­fully un­der­stated. 16 Rate re­sults (10): The av­er­age gain of slightly more than 1 sec­ond is very min­i­mal, but the rate val­ues shouldn’t be spread so widely among the in­di­vid­ual po­si­tions. 7 Over­all value (15):

Pay­ing the high price gets you a high-qual­ity and high-stamina man­u­fac­ture move­ment, but the price-per­for­mance ra­tio and the value preser­va­tion are av­er­age. 11 To­tal: 81POINTS
